College Hymn 

Hail, Alma Mater! We pledge our love to thee, 
Bring thee our hearts and hands in full loyalty. 
Praising thy counsel and trusting thy truth, 
Lift we our song to thee: O guide thou our youth! 
Lift we our song to thee: O bless now our youth! 
Make us, thy children, generous and just. 
Send us to labor when leave thee we must, 
Ready for service and worthy of trust. 




When we were pea-green Freshmen and still 
in the Orientation stage, they gave us mimeo- 
graphed maps of the college with all the lecture 
rooms and labs and offices carefulh marked out 
for us so that we should not get lost on the wa\ to 
class. Simmons was a strange place to all of us 
then, new and huge and little more than a name. 

Now it's far more than that. It means sitting 
through classes on drows\ summer afternoons, 
and wading up to the front door through the 
snowdrifts in February. It means taking hour 
exams and writing term papers ami worrying 
about marks. It means sit ting on the grass out b\ 
\ludd\ River "stud> infi"'; it means dales at Tech, 
dancing at Junior Prom, walking through Har- 
vard Yard. It means long arguments about tin- 
war and the capitalistic system and homework 
and men. It means joining clubs ami serenading 
one's sister class at Step Sinking. 

These are things we don't want to forget, and 
MICROCOSM is meant to help us remember, with 
ii> picture of the "little world" of our college. 
Administration, schools, clubs, classes, campus 
life, and especially the Simmons girls themsehes. 
are here. Don't let the blackboards on the end- 
sheet frighten you they're the last you'll see. 
probably, ami you won't have to take any tests 
on the information (?) that the\ convey. MIC 
isn't a textbook; it's all yours thou thyself art 
t be subject of our discourse. We hope you like it.

President Beatley and 

John Simmons was a Boston merchant (dates i 796-1870) who 
lived on Tremont Street with his wife Anna, his sons, John, 
Theodore, and Lorenzo, and his daughters Alvina and Mary 
Ann. He is best known to students by an oil portrait that hangs in 
the President's office and is occasionally reproduced in the News, 
and by the terms of his will, which provided for the establish- 
ment of a college for females that should "give instruction in art, 
science, and industry best calculated to enable the scholars to 
acquire an independent livelihood." John Simmons' words were 
subsequently engraved on the seal of Simmons College ("Art, 
Science, Industry," around an oak tree that has a lamp of learning 
beneath its branches) when the College was founded in 1899. 
Classes began in 1902. The first students wore long skirts and rode 
to their dormitories in horse-drawn cabs; but they were entering 
a modern college, the first of its kind in the country — the first to 
provide professional, as well as liberal arts, training for young 

The Corporation was established in 1899. Today it consists ol 
twenty-five members, men and women, who meet several times a 
year in private to discuss questions of administration, finance, 
property, and the like; and once a year in public — at Commence- 
ment time. 

The Corporation includes: Henry Lefavour, Ph.D., LL.D.; 
John Washburn Bartol, A.B., M.D., Emeritus; Mary Eleanor Wil- 
liams; Henry Edmund Bothfeld; Sarah Louise Arnold, A.M., 
Ed.D.; Carl Dreyfus, A.B.; Charles Milton Davenport, A.B.,

For the students, the Corporation is symbolized by President 
Bancroft Beatley. Dr. Beatley enters into student affairs at dances 
(Mic, this year), suppers, and, most popular of all, at the annual 
Faculty-Student Baseball Game. Active in education circles and 
in the civilian war effort, he still finds some time for his stamps and 
for the huge miniature train set he has in his Belmont home. 

President Beatley's jurisdiction is over administration, instruc- 
tion, college policy. The Dean's is over student welfare, scholar- 
ships, and residence. Dean Jane Louise Mesick is friendly, un- 
affected, and very busy — busy not only with all the student prob- 
lems, but with Red Cross work, aid to an English prisoner in 
Germany, and the job of Executive Secretary of the Medical 
Division of Civilian Defense in the Boston area. Dean of the 
Graduate Division since 1940 is Dr. James Mead Hyatt, physicist 
and lecturer extraordinary, who combines administrative ability 
with proficiency in the laboratory.

One of the busiest offices at Simmons is that of Comptroller 
Richmond K. Bachelder, chief active financial officer of the 
College, through whose hands go all bills, checks, scholarships, 
and loans. His staff supervise all the College buildings and 
grounds, including the residence halls and the downtown schools. 
Student organizational accounts are checked monthly by Mr. 
Bachelder and Stu-G Treasurer Jean Thompson, and the 
Comptroller has a veto power over club contracts of any consider- 
able amount. This year the war added to comptrollency diffi- 
culties, for everything relating to government rationing was hand- 
led through this office. During Midyears, Mr. Bachelder proudly 
announced that the main building and all the residence halls had 
been converted to coal heating. 

The Health Office, under the supervision of Dr. Anne Mc- 
Henry Hopkins and Dr. Winnifred Chase, is a clearing house for 
all complaints from broken toenails to the measles. Nurse Carolyn 
Robinson is always in attendance, cheering patients with her 
quiet manner and the efficient swish of her uniform. This year the 
customary individual conferences with the Freshmen were omit- 
ted, but not the routine physical exams given Freshmen and 
Seniors, nor the Seniors' conferences. Associated with the Health 
Office is the Laboratory in which Mrs. Mary Hill makes blood 
tests and analyses and develops X-rays. 

This year saw the creation of the new Admission and Guidance 
Office, exclusively for the use of Freshmen, under the direction of 
Miss Doris M. Sutherland. This office came into being during 




I 12] 

doing to make a college tick 

Christmas vacation; February found prospective students being 
interviewed in the attractive new conference room. Work of this 
department is connected with that of the Registrar's Office, 
which was taken over, at the resignation of Miss Dora B. Sher- 
burne (now Mrs. Arthur Seubert) by Mrs. Margaret K. Gonyea. 
This office is kept busy with publication of catalogues and various 
school and departmental bulletins, with registrations in Septem- 
ber, January, and May, with hour plans and with arrangement of 
programs. Miss Barrett, Miss Jennings, and Miss Grant patiently 
change and rechange student courses, keep catalogue mailing 
lists up-to-date, and juggle professors' and students' hours till 
they coincide. This work goes on all summer as well as during the 
school year. 

In October, the Recorder's Office was moved from one end of 
the wing to the other. This office is supervised by Miss Marjorie 
Burbank, whose motto is "check and double-check, take no 
chances." Her staff keeps a record of all vital information about 
students (including their marks), makes out exam schedules, and 
determines each student's accumulation of points. 

Way off on the first floor are the Office of the Department of 
Public Relations, directed by Mr. Wilfrid E. Playfair, and the 
Office of Information. Miss Jane Helseth ran this office till Mid- 
years, when it was taken over by Miss Marie C. LaPorte, who 
now attends to the switchboard, sorts mail, directs strangers, and 
answers questions. This is our smallest office, but the one best 
known to students, whose watchword is still "Meet you at Info." Richmond Knowlton Bachelder, B.B.A.

Gradus ad Parnassum 


. . . and books and butts 

The Library is always a busy place — even if it is on the fourth 
floor. Traffic is heaviest, possibly, at 4:10, because everyone sud- 
denly remembers the reading that is due tomorrow, and rushes 
to Library A for a book which twelve girls before her have 
already tried — vainly — to reserve. A thirteenth girl — the early 
bird — has it. 

Miss Alice Hopkins presides in these upper regions. With the 
assistance of Mrs. Bloom, Miss Frost, and Mrs. Mutch, she takes 
care of the more than 80,000 volumes kept in the main building, 
keeps up the card catalogue, and referees the struggle for From 
Galileo to Cosmic Rays. 

In between Libraries A and B is the hall where economics 
majors can keep up on their current events (in the New York 
Times) after they've finished Terry and the Pirates and our irresist- 
ible Dahl (in the Boston Herald). 

Colorful exhibits of books, posters, and pictures, designed to 
further interest in assemblies, courses, and special lectures, 
attract students passing through the main hall. This year, for 
instance, the new course in "Great Books" has been the basis for 
numerous displays. 

The Lunchroom had a new director this year — Miss Louisa 
Tate, who met the problem of maintaining the standards of 
former years in the face of wartime scarcities and high prices. 
Food remained as tasty as ever, but there were changes: cheese, 
egg, and macaroni dishes assumed prominence, meat became 
scarce. Sugar and butter were less freely distributed, desserts were 
without whipped cream and salads innocent of bananas. Worst of

No cokes left 


and nourishment to make the students eliek 

all, there were not always enough cokes to go around. But com- 
muters noticed the same differences at home, and dorm students 
were used to turning in their ration books over on campus. Miss 
Tate stressed the need of sensible diets this year; she offered 
special "sample meals" and urged students to eat wisely and not 
too well. A student Lunchroom Committee worked with her on 
the problem of fifth-hour crowds. The Lunchroom held its usual 
fascination this year; eating remains one of the favorite Simmons 

The Simmons Cooperative Bookstore, which is practically 
never called that, absorbs the extra nickels and dimes of Simmons 
girls. It's a mad place at the beginning of each semester, when it is 
besieged by hundreds of students all trying to buy all their books 
for all their courses at once. Hardened Seniors quail before this 
experience; some have been known to skip their first few assign- 
ments rather than attempt to buy books during the first week of 
the term. But except for these brief periods, the Bookstore is one of 
the pleasantest spots in the building. Mrs. Bradstreet, Mrs. Carle- 
ton, and Mrs. Butler are always ready to suggest a special gift. 
Stock changed quickly, keeping a few steps ahead of the seasons, 
even though certain goods were unavailable this year. Metal trays 
and dishes disappeared, nylon stockings were replaced by rayon 
and cotton, and woolen socks by Aralac. An entire new line of 
stationery and gifts designed for men in the service was intro- 
duced. With its Mexican plates, unique knitting bags, new ker- 
chiefs, socks, and, of course, its books, the Coop is a grand place 
for browsing and window-shopping de luxe.

The A. A. keeps students together 


Ruth Huntington Danielson, A.M. 


Supervision of dormitory life isn't an easy job, especially since 
wartime problems have been added to the old ones of late signer- 
outers and homesick Freshmen. It is efficiently carried out, how- 
ever, on both Simmons campuses. Director of Residence on main 
campus, Miss Ruth Danielson, came here from the University of 
Michigan last year to make life pleasant for upperclass dormers. 
Miss Danielson takes a personal and understanding interest in 
every student, carries on administration of the eleven houses and 
halls from her rooms in Evans, reads philosophy in her spare time. 
Over in Brookline, Mrs. Frank C. Cooper welcomes Freshmen, 
explains rules and regulations, and entertains numberless Tech 
men. The housemothers and assistant resident heads help with 
their work. 

The Alumnae Association, established in June, 1906, has some 
1800 members all over the world. Miss Helena V. O'Brien, Presi- 
dent, is a lawyer and a special instructor in Business Law. She is 
in charge of Association and Executive Board meetings, and of 
elections of new Board members. Miss Marjorie L. Shea, Execu- 
tive Secretary, runs the Alumnae office at college, records con- 
tributions, publishes the Simmons Review. Under the Dix reunion 
plan, ten or twelve classes meet annually. Miss Shea brings them 
together, and finds living accommodations for them at the dorms 
or at downtown hotels. Simmons Clubs throughout the country 
provide certain local scholarship grants, and the Association pre- 
sents the Alumnae Honor Award and the Alumnae Scholarship 
Award at its annual tea for the Senior Class, held this year at 
Evans Hall just after Midyears.

Students in the School of English count words instead 
of sheep. Most of their work, whether it's for a seminar in 
seventeenth-century metaphysical poetry or for a review 
of the latest best-seller for "Lit Crit," consists of writing 
papers. Literary critiques, journalistic features, short 
stories, poems — the range of forms is so broad that each 
student receives a good training in writing, which is sup- 
plemented by extra-curricular work on Mic, Fen Ways, 
and News. 

The English School trains students (and places them 
almost 100 per cent) for positions in publishing houses, 
advertising agencies, newspaper and magazine offices, 
and radio stations. Under the guidance of the Director of 
the School, Dr. Robert M. Gay, girls get a broad back- 
ground in English and other literatures and take at least 
two technical courses in Journalism, Publicity, or Pub- 
lishing. In these courses, students acquire something of 
the vocabulary of the city room and the print-shop and 
air it before outsiders. Sally Simmons reported one in- 
stance of this in News: 'Did you bleed?' inquired one 
English student. 'No,' answered the other, 'and I kept out 
of the gutter.' Climax of this technical training is the 
project required of Seniors in Publishing — the prepara- 
tion of a book, magazine, or publicity scheme that will be 
practical evidence of their ability. 

By the time they are Seniors, most of the girls in the 
School of English live in the Editors' Room. The school 
has almost without exception furnished the editors of 
Microcosm and News; and the college literary magazine 

Jenson, Antunes, Case, West 

[ 20 J 


count words instead of sheep 

Fen Ways is under their direction, as a practical lab ex- 
periment. The Seniors take charge of the first three issues 
each year, the Juniors take the fourth. A system oi 
partially changing staffs with each issue means that 
every girl in the school, by the time she graduates, will 
have held an editorial position on at least one issue and 
have worked on two or three. 

Some favorite courses of English majors are: Shake- 
speare, Mediaeval Lit, Seventeenth Century Lit, Ad- 
vanced Composition, Journalism. Bugbear is the re- 
quired course in Secretarial Studies — a bitter dose, but 
very, very useful. Practice work during part of the second 
semester of the Senior year supplements class work. 
Every year girls go to radio stations, newspapers, maga- 
zines (from the Atlantic Monthly to Skating), bookstores, 
publishers, and advertisers. They enjoy this work, partly 
because they like putting what they've learned to actual 
use, partly because they can pretty well choose where 
they'll go. 

The English Club is open to "poetry-scribblers, 
novel-readers, joke-lovers, and idea-discussers" from all 
schools, but most of its members are from this one. 
Gertrude Case ("Sally Simmons Says") headed the 
group this year. One of the hit programs of the year 
was the faculty-student "Information Please" quiz; 
at another tea, Theodore Morrison, Harvard professor 
and poet, spoke on modern poetry. Assistant officers of 
the club were Jean-Marie Jenson, Camille West, and 
Edith Antunes.

The Machine Age 

Cooper and club members 

Today's important war executive demands a secretary who can 
do more than take rapid dictation and transcribe notes accurate- 
ly. He wants a Girl Friday. Graduates of the Simmons School 
of Business are trained to be expert stenographers with the know- 
ledge and poise of business leaders. The Director of the School of 
Business, Dr. Samuel J. Lukens, prepares his students for execu- 
tive work. 

Two out of three Business School majors will tell you that 
their schedule is tough. They have few free hours. Their program 
consists of technical subjects as well as cultural — a Business School 
girl is just as familiar with the critical theories of Matthew Arnold 
as with the rules of accounting; she spends as many hours pound- 
ing office machines as she does frowning over Spengler's Decline of 
the West. The course which really keeps Business students on their 
toes is "Efficiency," Business 40 in the catalogue. Whenever you 
see a group of them talking excitedly, you can be sure that the 
topic of conversation is Efficiency. It is a stimulating course, which 
initiates students into the art of answering the telephone, opening 
ten envelopes, signing a telegram, licking a stamp, and filing a 
bill all in thirty seconds flat without losing an iota of poise. 

In spite of all the worrying they do about typing, accounting 
and personnel, the Business School girls always look forward 
eagerly to the second half of the Senior year. At this time, each 
girl does practise work in some business office in or near Boston. 
This year Seniors went to hospitals, psychiatric clinics, lawyers' 
offices, insurance firms, and general business concerns; they spent 

• k asdl'g;lkjh,as<lf•g•,lkjh ,, 


of the sciences 

every Wednesday of the second semester in putting the theories 
they learned in class into actual operation. 

Graduates of this school fill various positions in all parts of the 
country. Among the alumnae can be found directors of personnel, 
supervisors of correspondence, court reporters, advertising writers, 
filing experts, and departmental heads. The number of graduates 
employed by the government, state and federal, is now greater 
than ever before. Washington, crowded and busy, offers new 
opportunities daily. Today, Simmons girls find it easy to step 
right into a position, and what is more, a well-paying one, im- 
mediately upon receiving their degree. This year they were given 
added preparation for work after graduation through a special 
new course dealing with the effects of the war upon employers. 

Faculty and students meet informally and become better ac- 
quainted at Scribunal Club meetings. This year's club president 
was Dorothy Cooper. Her assistants were Mary Jane McGrath, 
Vice-President; June Wittfield, Secretary, and Carol Hartford, 
Treasurer. The School is the largest undergraduate school at 
Simmons (163 undergraduate students) and Scribunal is the 
largest school club. All the members of the group did volunteer 
work in some war agency during the year. At the annual Christ- 
mas tea, one of the main events of the year, the girls wrapped 
cookies and sent them to camps and military centers. Other club 
programs were the annual Mother-Daughter Tea held in April, 
and a tea at which a representative of the WAAC addressed the 

"What happened to that other fifty cents?"

Science School students wear what amounts to a uniform — 
serviceable smocks, often perforated with acid holes, and ker- 
chiefs round their hair. Their course is notoriously "tough" and is 
extremely important just now, with wartime demands for just 
such college-trained technicians as Dr. John A. Timm turns out 
every year. 

Lab-hungry Freshmen and Sophomores have at least a year's 
stab at three sciences — chemistry, physics, and biology. If they 
survive this and enter the Junior class, they select a major, choos- 
ing as their field of concentration organic chemistry or physics 
and math — test tubes and the smell of hydrogen sulphide, or 
logarithms and pulley-wheels. 

Some of the most important courses offered by the school are 
diagnostics, bacteriology, and courses for teacher-training in 
physics. There is special work in haematology and in the old 
standby, hospital laboratory testing. Courses in the arts and the 
social sciences are required of Science majors, so that they may 
receive a well-rounded education. 

Science school grads don't stand in waiting lines. The usual 
procedure is reversed. The prospective employers do the soliciting, 
by letter, personal interview, and representatives sent to the 
college. Simmons Science Seniors, like Tech Seniors, usually 
spend their last semester at school weighing the comparative 
merits of the various positions offered them. Graduates work in 
research laboratories in colleges, and in federal and private 
industrial labs. One recent graduate is working at synthesising

bacteriology. Even undergraduates have been pressed into service 
since the war began: they worked in labs during summer vaca- 
tion, and one Sophomore was employed at the Red Cross blood- 
donating center all through the year. Science students have so 
much experience in and out of school that the usual Senior 
"practice work" is not considered necessary for them. 

Science students have few free hours; double-hour discussions 
and lectures and long sessions with the test tubes take up their 
time from 8:45 to 4:10. But their lab courses have certain at- 
tractive features that are rarely found in the regular class meetings 
of the other schools. There is a quiet informality about them, and 
while four straight hours' work on an experiment may be hard on 
the feet, one can keep up a certain amount of conversation 
through it all, and take an occasional trip into the hall, or even 
down to Show Case. 

Ellen Richards was the first woman ever to graduate from 
M.I.T., and her spiritual daughters at Simmons named their 
school club after her. Some of the club traditions are unique, 
especially the banquet given to welcome new members, which is 
held in a laboratory (slightly de-fumigated for the occasion) and 
at which food is served in beakers and bottles. Other meetings of 
the Ellen Richards Club are less startling, being held in the 
Lounge, and having a more conventional service. Jeanne Blanch- 
ard was President this year: the Secretary-Treasurer was Hilda 
Yee, and the Senior Representative was Gertrude Kirsner.

Simmons College Nurses — from 

The Simmons nursing cap, designed by a former student, has 
appeared this year on all the battlefronts of the world, on Army 
and Navy officers and Red Cross nurses; at emergency relief 
centers; in operating rooms; in nursing lecture-halls. It repre- 
sents a high achievement. 

Simmons nurses receive their B.S. and R.N. only after five 
years of work. To Freshmen, it seems a terrific dose; but fourth- 
and fifth-year students find time almost too short for all their 
studying and practical work. College life is in order for the first 
two and a half years, with emphasis on the sciences and psy- 
chology, and with six weeks of summer work at the Peter Bent 
Brigham and the "General." Then, at midyears, Nursing School 
Juniors are formally capped at the traditional candlelight cere- 
mony, and leave the college to train in hospitals for two solid 
years — at the Boston Lying-in for maternity cases, the Children's 
Hospital for pediatrics, the McLean for psychiatry. The nurses 
come back to Simmons for the second semester of their fifth year, 
and get their B.S. Finally, after two months of public health ser- 
vice in Boston's poorer districts, they are awarded the R.N. 

Simmons has graduated superior nurses since 1918, emphasis 
shifting in 1934 from specialization in Public Health work to 
every phase of the profession. Practically every one of the avail- 
able nurses is now serving in the armed forces or on the home 
front, in spite of the fact that the marriage mortality is high in 
this school. 

Student nurses, "probies," and graduates are united in an af-

fectionate admiration for the director of the school. Miss Wood is 
the nurse-executive par excellence. Students remember her kindness 
in conferences, her active personal interest in each girl, which, 
as some know, extends to the babies of graduates. Another link 
between hospital student nurses and those still in college is Anne 
Strong Club. Named for the first director of the Nursing School, 
Anne Strong meets monthly in Evans, welcomes Freshmen as well 
as members of the school. Lecturers on physiotherapy, Army, 
psychopathic, and obstetrical nursing were on this year's calendar. 
On May 12 — Hospital Day — Anne Strong toured Boston hospitals 
en masse. Their Christmas party benefited the Good Samaritan 
Hospital for rheumatic children. Most heroic feat was that of 
the members who volunteered for four hours of labor at various 
hospitals every Saturday. Commuters like Barbara Akers, Presi- 
dent, got up at six o'clock on dark December mornings for this. 
Nurses' training isn't all drudgery. There are fascinating ses- 
sions in "lab"; operating-room scenes that are as exciting as the 
movies say; and there is the greatest pleasure of all — the visible 
satisfaction of the persons they serve. Helpful and cheerful pa- 
tients are the greatest boon to probationers. W 7 hen the head nurse 
coolly surveys every move of the nervous probie as she makes a 
bed or gives a bath, it is wonderfully reassuring to be told by the 
victim of this practical training: "That's all right, girlie. Just let 
me know when you want me to turn over and don't worry about 
that supervisor. I'm all with you."

There's plenty of variety in the library field, as you are 
reminded when you see a Bookmobile making its rounds 
through a rural district, when your serviceman writes 
that the camp librarian has been helping him bone up on 
some technical stuff, when you contribute a book to the 
V-Book campaign and — of course — when you go over to 
the Branch Library to get a nice love story for Aunt 

The Simmons School of Library Science trains its 
students (all of them enrolled as members in the A.L.A.) 
for work in libraries big and little, general and special- 
ized. Miss Nina C. Brotherton is acting as Director of the 

Libe students go through three years of stiff academic 
work, during which they elect as many courses as they 
can in their pet subjects, for in their Senior year, when 
professional training really begins, they don't have a 
chance for anything but technical courses. They prepare 
for jobs as public librarians in regional or small town 
libes, as children's librarians (there's a big field there; 
it seems there are always children around), as librarians 
specializing in book selection, cataloguing, etc., or as 
special librarians in any field from banking and tech- 
nology to music and art. 

Senior year is one of the hardest in any school, with 
classes almost every hour, and with a huge amount ot 
outside work. Upperclass students spend most of their 
free time in Room 318, where there is a special library 
for their own use, and where they each have a desk. 
Besides the intensive work they do in school, they take a

lot of field trips. They follow the guide up and down 
stairs, through narrow passages, gathering all the dust 
from the stacks and secret places of the B.P.L., the Boston 
Athenaeum, Widener, and local libraries. Their feet 
get tired, but they like the glimpse they get of what goes 
on behind the scenes, and the chance they have of ap- 
plying class theories to what they see. Favorite trip this 
year was one through the Yenching Institute (Chinese- 
Japanese) with Dr. Chu as guide, during which they saw 
manuscripts two thousand years old. 

Girls in Libe get a chance to put theories into practice, 
also, during summer vacations, when many of them 
assist in, or even take charge of, libraries in their home 
towns. Their practice work is brought to a climax in the 
second semester of the last year, when they go to libraries 
in several states for two weeks of concentrated experience 
on actual jobs. 

020, the Library School undergraduates' club, emph- 
asized the war effort this year, starting off with a talk by 
Mrs. Aline Whiteside, Simmons alumna, who holds the 
vital position of head of all Army libraries in the First 
Service Command area. Under her leadership, busy 
members went down to headquarters to help sort the 
sixty thousand V-Books turned in by the civilian public. 

020 found time, too, for monthly teas and meetings. 
Peg Collins was President; Doris McCrary, Vice-Presi- 
dent; Constance Lima, Secretary; Betty Chute, Trea- 
surer; Vivian Downes, Chairman of Activities; and 
Dorothy Leeper, Chairman of Teas.

Needles, pins, vitamins 

Probably every single student in the English, Library Science, 
Preprofessional, Science, Business, and Nursing schools has at one 
time or another wished she belonged to the School of Home 
Economics, for the smells that are wafted forth from the cooking 
labs on the third floor — smells of fresh-baked bread, of apple pie, 
and of gingerbread — are practically irresistible. The school at- 
tracts the outsider also by displays of textiles and by the gowns 
draped over mannequins in the Clothing rooms. 

Home Ec girls do not intend to be cooks or dressmakers, but 
they could be. Along with their academic courses and their sci- 
entific work in chemistry and biology, they receive training in the 
actual preparation of food and the design and making of clothing. 
The names of some of their courses speak for themselves: Experi- 
mental Cookery, Community Nutrition, Interior Decorating, 
History of Ornament, Home Management. 

Foods majors have a chance to try out their wares when they 
hold bargain food sales in Evans basement on Tuesday nights. 
Girls from all over campus come over for late snacks. Home Ec 
brownies are famous. Clothing majors, likewise, put their training 
to good use: dorm girls hang out their shingles and solicit campus 
trade in the dressmaking line. Just before Mic and News, they 
are swamped with orders for shortening, lengthening, taking in, 
Do I get up before the sun does this time? i ett i ng out , an d lifting the faces of gowns.

fun. By the time Senior year comes around the hours are what 
laborites would call abnormal. There are six A.M. jaunts down 
to Boston restaurant kitchens, there is the well-known Institu- 
tional Management itinerary, and there is food sampling at 
hotels and resorts. Last fall, for instance, there was a spree at a 
rural inn on the North Shore, with horseback riding, surf-bathing, 
country walks, and wonderful food — luxury, till each Home Ec-er 
had to sit down and write a criticism of the management. 

Among the favorite courses in this school is one of the most 
unusual in the whole college. Eight girls live at Practice House, 
on main campus, for eight weeks, sharing all the work of running 
the house, planning meals, buying food, sewing, and serving the 
food. The course was directed this year by Miss Catherine Starr. 

This year Miss Elda Robb, attractive and efficient director of 
the school, has instituted new "refresher courses" for students, 
defense workers, and your mother and mine. Graduate work in 
dietetics will be offered this summer, and courses in child care and 
guidance, emergency feeding, and nutrition are planned. 

The Home Ec Club is famous for having the best "eats" of all 
the clubs at Simmons. Its big annual event is the Home Ec 
Banquet, at which the ultimate in gastronomical delicacy is 
attained. Home Ec officers this year were: Marilyn Davis, Presi- 
dent; Betty Bell, Vice-President; Jean MacAfee, Secretary; Lois 
Butler, Treasurer; and Priscilla Henderson, Program Chairman.

Preprofessional Studies — prelude 

Harrison L. Harley, Ph.D. 

Youngest of the seven undergraduate schools at Simmons is the 
School of Preprofessional Studies. Headed by friendly, erudite 
Dr. Harrison L. Harley, the school furnishes a sound groundwork 
in the arts and the social sciences in preparation for professional 
studies. Most of the students are headed for social service work, 
although some undertake pre-medical or pre-dental studies here, 
and some plan to do graduate work at Prince. Others prepare for 
work in library science, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, 
and allied medical sciences, as well as for economics and sociology. 

Four basic programs are planned in this school, but adequate 
leeway for individual inclinations is allowed. With Dr. Harley's 
aid, students map out programs that will give them a broad 
cultural background; but this is stressed rather as a prelude to 
professional graduate study than as an end in itself. Each of the 
four programs (social work, store service education, library sci- 
ence, medical science) is geared to courses in the undergraduate 
school to which it bears the closest relationship. Girls who are 
headed for social work concentrate on sociology, economics, and 
psych. Miss Marenda Prentis' Introduction to the Fields of Social 
Work brings many of the Seniors into their first actual contact 
with social problems. Many gain more experience through volun- 
teer work in Boston settlement houses and other agencies. 

Fewer formal class hours, fewer laboratory sessions char- 
acterize programs of students in Preprofessional; much of their 
time is spent in research and in volunteer work.

Katherine Davis Hardwick, A.B. 

Under the shadow of the capitol dome on Beacon Hill 
stands the Simmons School of Social Work. Open only to 
college graduates, the school offers a program in profes- 
sional social work leading to the degree of Master of 
Science. Its program is based on the case work theory, 
which stresses individual problems of the persons being 
aided. The first year emphasizes the philosophy of social 
work, as well as practical training acquired through field 
work in carefully selected agencies. The second year 
student undertakes specialized study in a field of her 
own choosing. All candidates for the degree must write 
a thesis and take an oral examination. 

Under the guidance of tall, gray-haired, charming 
Miss Katherine Hardwick, students select one of five 
general fields: family welfare, medical or psychiatric 
social work, juvenile aid, community organization, or 
social research. 

Volunteer work in war agencies, settlement houses, 
and hospitals, plays a large part in the lives of those 
young women. Their experience is constantly being 
broadened. By the time their Master of Science degree is 
awarded them, they have gained a wide experience with

Prince School of Retailing 

The Prince School of Retailing offers an advanced program in 
store service education. College graduates receive a diploma at 
completion of the course; and certain students who are admitted 
with three years college training receive their B.S. at the end 
of the year. Three members of the Senior Class of Simmons have 
been at Prince this year. 

Dr. Samuel J. Lukens, who is Director of the School of Business 
and Secretarial Studies, is also Director of Prince. Associate Di- 
rector is Miss Helen Norton, whose devotion to the school's 
interests is already legend. They offer to girls who like to work 
with color, goods, and people a thorough schooling in merchan- 
dising, personnel, store finance, textiles, color, advertising. Bos- 
ton's large department stores cooperate in offering a wide range 
of field work, and six weeks before Christmas holidays Prince 
girls — characterized by an un-collegiate neatness and chic — go to 
stores in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and other large cities 
for a taste of actual junior executive work. On their return to 
Boston, they undertake projects in store work which generally 
involve individual research work in retailing. Certain college 
graduates in the school may prepare a thesis in absentia during 
the next year, towards the Master of Science degree. 

Throughout the course a watchful eye is kept on current events. 
The latest developments in labor, consumer organization, price- 
control, etc., are analyzed. Students are now being trained for 
positions in federal regulatory agencies.

Stu G . . . a college achievement in 

Every undergraduate student automatically becomes a 
member of the Student Government Association upon 
entering Simmons. Each class is represented in Stu-G 
Council, a committee of twelve elected to regulate life 
at the college. Membership in the council is the highest 
elective honor among the students. The group meets 
weekly to hear committee reports, discuss business, and 
make decisions. 

Carolyn Avery headed Student Government this year, 
filling a position that requires intelligence, efficiency, and 
tact, for the problems that come up before Stu-G are 
many and varied. New clubs (this year, for instance, the 
Orchestra and the Forum group) must submit constitu- 
tions which the council approves or sends back for amend- 
ment; standing committees like Social Activities are 
supervised, and Simmons student policy in intercollegiate 
matters is determined. Stu-G runs certain affairs that 
aren't specifically under the direction of a particular 
club or class; for example, Old English Dinner, at which 
all the members of the council are honored; upperclass 
marriage lectures; and May Party, at which the results 
of all-college elections are announced, and at which the 
chain of John Simmons is given to the incoming president 

of Student Government by the retiring president. 

Questions raised and suggestions proposed by students 
are referred to the Advisory Board, which is made up 
of the Dean, three members of the Faculty who are 
graduates of the college, and three members of the 
council. This board has the final say on student policy. 

Honor Board, headed this year by Priscilla Hess, is 
one of the most important organizations in the college. 
Its chairman sits in at Stu-G and Dorm Board meetings, 
besides conducting meetings of her own group. Simmons 
has operated on the present Honor System since 1931 — 
exams are conducted without monitors, dorm students 
who come in after hours report themselves, and so forth. 
Every student is a member of the system. The Board 
consists of three Seniors, three Juniors, one Sophomore, 
and one Freshman, who meet privately to hear cases of 
violation and decide upon treatment. The quieter the 
schedule is, the better pleased is Honor Board, for that 
means that its system is functioning successfully. 

One of the most prominent Stu-G groups this year was 
the War Service Committee (organized in 1941 as the 
Defense Committee). Chairman Dina Morelli, with a 
committee made up of representatives of all classes,

directed war stamp sales, bandage-rolling, first-aid 
classes, Red Cross work. An all-out bond campaign was 
begun in February, with the purchase of two jeeps for 
the Army as goal. Another group to do war work was 
Ivy-S, organized originally to raise money to provide 
scholarships for refugee students; in 1942-43 it worked 
for the relief milk fund for Russian children. 

Another division of Student Government is Dormitory 
Council, made up of the president and vice-president of 
Stu-G, the chairman of Honor Board, and the chairman 
of the different houses and halls on campus. The work of 
this organization is never ending. The members make 
all recommendations for campus rules, which are sent 
to Student Government for ratification. Dormitory 
Board, within Dorm Council, is a judicial body — both 
groups are headed by Colette Peterson, Vice-President 
of Student Government. Girls who break rules (coming 
in after hours is the most frequent offense) come up 
before the Board, and may be put on Social Pro for a 
varying length of time. Three Seniors, two Juniors, one 
Soph, and one Freshman make up the Board. This year 
the dorm groups instigated a campaign for more campus 
functions — hikes, tours, concerts, and plays were ar- 

ranged throughout both semesters for dorm girls. 

The Curriculum Committee, organized by Stu-G, 
studies student criticism of the courses offered, and sug- 
gestions for new courses. As a result of the committee's 
survey, new courses, such as that in map-making, were 
added to the curriculum. 

All is not work for Student Government officers. Girls 
who are on the Social Activities Committee have fun 
arranging Student-Faculty dinners, teas, and get-ac- 
quainted dances for the Freshmen. And members of the 
Assembly Committee have the pleasant job of assisting 
a Faculty board in choosing speakers and presenting them 
at assemblies. Noted lecturers have been brought to the 
college; programs of all kinds, from the lightest to the 
gravest, have been given. Some guest speakers this year 
were the Hon. Margaret Bondfield, first woman member 
of the British Cabinet; the Greek consul at Boston, Mr. 
Alexis S. Liatus; three Flight Lieutenants of the Royal 
Australian Air Force, and a noted deep sea diver, Mr. 
Max Gene Nohl. 

All this is only a small part of the work carried on 
as a matter of routine, by the student association through 
the year.

Class organizations outlive all the others. It's as mem- 
bers of the Class of '09, or '20, or '43 that we have a place 
in the Alumnae Association. But the importance of 
classes isn't just post-collegiate — they're probably the 
major groups within the student association, and class 
officers have a big job on their hands. Not only do they 
carry on the routine business of budgets and committee 
meetings, but they supervise elections and assist in tradi- 
tional affairs — Freshman Frolic and Freshman Formal, 
Soph Shuffle and Soph Luncheon, Junior Welcome and 
Junior Prom, Senior Prom and Class Day. 

Juniors and Frosh, Sophs and Seniors are sister classes. 
Every Junior has a "Freshman Sister" whom she takes 
sightseeing through Boston, and for whom she tries to 
find a man for Freshman Formal. Next year, the Sopho- 
mores reciprocate, and try to find a man for their sister 
at Senior Prom. 

The Class Mascots — Panda Bear, Little Lulu, Black 
Lamb, and the Gremlin — are present at class meetings, 
and are in the class processions at Step Singing. Each 
mascot shares his class's hour of glory when the Juniors 
take over the Colonnade at the end of May.

Dorm life 

Walking over from Brookline when you're a 
Freshman — taking over upperclass campus next 
year — sleeping through rising bells — borrowing 
your skirt from Roomie and your sweater from 
Jane down the hall — trips to the drug for a coke 
and smoke — bull sessions on communism, sex, 
and the war — weekends when your man can 
come up — life at the dorms is fun. 

They live by laundry case alone. 

Fun? Well — life at the dorms begins not too 
early in the morning (you get up just too late 
for breakfast, but almost on time for your first 
hour class) and it ends at i :^o A.M., or maybe 
later, in the smoker. You have your shoes off, 
you've torn your only decent evening dress, you 
came in fifteen minutes late and you have to 
report to Dorm Board tomorrow. There's no ice 
box to raid, there aren't even any cookies left 
in your next-door neighbor's drawer, and your 
Spanish assignment isn't done. So you just sit 
in the smoker discussing the facts of life. Home 
was never like this. 

Game room gambols 

But you do learn a lot! You learn that a dollar 
is made up of one hundred slippery pennies 
whose object in life is to turn into nickels and 
jump into the Evans coke machine, or to turn 
into dimes and jump into the fare box on the bus. 
You learn how to wash and iron a dickey in 
five minutes and wear it wet. You learn to sleep 
on a perfect Simmons mattress in three-weeks- 
old sheets. You learn to trust neither your 
mother nor the Railway Express. You learn to 
eat what's set before you and say noth. . .well, 
not much. You learn that if you want a secret 
well kept, you keep it yourself. Oh, girls are 
fun to live with, but. . . .

South Station: Commuters meet lots of people. 


The commuter's day is a long one. You bound out of 
bed in the dim grey dawn, dress in two minutes flat, 
stick your toast in your pocket, kiss your mother good- 
bye, and dash for the bus (or train, or streetcar, or what- 
ever it may be), which has just left your stop. You wait 
for the next one, and finally arrive in a subway station. 
Then it's swing and sway with the B.E.Ry. till you get to 
Park Street, where you wait a minute or two, or twenty, 
for the next Jamaica-Arborway car. The great advantage 
of the cars leaving Park is that you don't have to worry 
if you don't get a seat: the crowd will hold you firmly 
upright, so you can use both hands to hold your two 
volumes of Modern Economics, your History of the Far East, 
your three-pound notebook, your pocketbook, and your 
lunch. You generally arrive at college in time for your 
second class. 

About 60 per cent of the girls at Simmons commute. 
The term "commuter" is applied, technically, to every 
student who doesn't live in a college residence hall. Ac- 
tually, it means a lot more in some cases than in others; 
for some students come in every day from Worcester, 
forty miles away, while others live as near to the school as 
Evans Way or Park Drive. Most commuters, however, 
come in from the suburbs, like the Newtons and parts of 
the South Shore, and from different parts of Boston. 

Rarin' to go 



they run like hell to catch the "EL 


They come in by train, bus, streetcar, subway, or (a few 
still) by auto. Freshmen sometimes get lost on the way, 
but seasoned commuters can do the trip in their sleep, 
and often do. 

Commuting offers a chance for exercise both physical 
and mental — in fact, you can't survive it unless you're 
both strong and crafty. Muscle is developed as you 
sprint up escalators and when you push people out of your 
way; the sense of balance is developed as you ride in the 
subway, standing sans a strap. You're kept alert mentally 
by the constant need for gauging where the door of the 
car is going to stop, by figuring out the name of "a well- 
known epic poet" from the picture of a baseball player on 
a placard in the subway train, and, of course, by the 
popular game, encouraged by the English teacher, of 
making up stories about the woman in the purple hat and 
red coat who is sitting opposite you in the elevated. Be- 
sides all this, you learn about some interesting sidelights 
of American history from the ancient relics that the 
railroads not only display, but use since the transporta- 
tion problem came upon us: 1870 cars with brown plush 
seats, smoked-glass windows, and one door at each end. 
Some very interesting streetcars date back just as far. 
So it can be seen, children, that the commuter's life is 
instructive as well as entertaining.

News Reporters write— 

Editors rehash— 


Readers read. 


staffs get drunk on printer's ink 

It is symbolic of Simmons student publications that 
one of their mascots is a Worry Bird. Mic, Fen Ways, and 
News mean a lot of hard work and a lot of worry. This 
year, the Editors' Room, notoriously the most untidy in 
Simmons, was the scene, even during the Christmas 
vacation, of work on schedules, writing and rewriting, 
staff conferences, pep talks, and of course, plenty of 
gossip and plenty of profanity. 

All the publications share the same office (also the 
same paper, rulers, typewriters, and headaches), but they 
are quite separate. 

The Simmons News (begun in 1922) includes everything 
from the latest marriage announcements to lists of new 
books in the Library, from the latest dope on diners and 
dancers to sober accounts of lectures on physiotherapy. 
News goes to press Wednesdays; the editors spend most 
of the night putting it to bed. When it comes out on 
Thursday, the girls read headlines, social news, and 
"Sally Simmons Says" immediately; then glance 
through news articles and, eventually, scan editorials. 

News extended its editorial policy this year beyond 
discussions of college affairs: it encouraged various drives 
for scrap, war stamp sales, and blood donations; and it

aired pet complaints of Simmons girls, like the pledge 
activities of certain college fraternities. News also served 
in an important capacity as a medium of expression for 
Dean, President, and Faculty members. 

A major change in set-up was instituted this year. 
News was taken over by a staff headed by Juniors right 
after midyears. Until 1943, the shift has always taken 
place in May, just before the Student Government 
general elections. By this move it was hoped that the in- 
coming staff would gain valuable experience and have 
access to the advice of the Seniors, so that they would not 
have to start from scratch next fall. Editor Speedie and 
Associate Editor Laipson campaigned to have this plan 
extended to all college organizations except Mic and 

Social highlights of News were the annual tea for suc- 
cessful try-outs, the big all-college formal, and News 
Banquet, at which the new staff was announced, and at 
which, traditionally, the Simmonsnooper tabloid, a bur- 
lesque of News and the people who get into it, is 
privately circulated for the edification of editors, business 
staff, and humble reporters. 

Fen Ways, begun last year as an English School baby, is 

. . . and we may stay out of the red." 


From cuts to cruisers— 

MIC and News send copper where it will do 

the most good. 



an experimental magazine aimed to give practical exper- 
ience in writing and publishing. Fen Ways is less of a 
grind than Mic or Mews because each staff works only 
two months, and because it is so new as to be flexible. 
The editor of each issue is free to try out her own ideas. 

With Marion Mainwaring as editor, members of the 
Class of '43 took the magazine over as Juniors last spring. 
They struggled in the void of "no previous experience," 
discovered that Dr. Gay, Mr. Valz, Mr. Playfair, and 
other English School instructors were reliable sources of 
information. They also discovered the definitions of 
pica, makeready, halftone, and other such troublesome 
words, and grew a collection of white hairs worrying 
about advertisers, in aeternum floreant. This year's staffs, 
under Sue Hartman, Esther Engelman, Liz Mahoney, 
and Phyllis Baker, ran up against a new, astonishing, 
and pleasing problem: demand was greater than supply! 
Finances still were troublesome, but the editors borrowed 
from the Business School and discovered that a filing 
system does help find out how big a deficit really is. 

Fen Ways, though edited by English School students, 
has included staff members from other schools, and all 
classes have contributed articles, stories, poems, and 
illustrations. The editors have struggled to make it truly 
an all-college publication; and sales show that the stud- 
ents think it is a student magazine. It includes a supple- 
ment consisting of an outstanding paper written in any 
course, selected by a faculty committee and paid for by 
the committee, but everything in the magazine itself is 
free from faculty control. Professors are frequently asked 
to contribute something — but subject to the blue pencil 
of a student editor. 

As for Microcosm: this is its thirty-third issue, the 

MlC: Mainwaring's dictation 

meets faculty consideration 


thirty-third record of the "little world" that is Simmons. 
Mic staff began work last May with selection of bidding 
photographers and engravers; and they met several 
times during the summer. When school opened, they 
planned the contents of the book, the dummy, publicity, 
money-raising schemes, and write-ups. Throughout the 
year meetings were held with engravers, printers, faculty 
advisors. The photographer came to school and obliging- 
ly climbed on tables and crawled along the ground to get 
the right angle; he went over to campus and blushingly 
wandered through Evans to get a "bull-session" shot. 
Stories were assigned, written, rewritten. Seniors were 
coaxed and bullied into having their pictures taken and 
into filling out schedule sheets. Proofs of pictures and 
copy came in — very slowly. The dummy was pasted 
together, captions were thought up after a long struggle, 
and finally Mic went to press. 

Mic editors were up against the usual yearbook prob- 
lem: that of working, not only with a big staff, but with 
two hundred seniors, and forty nurses scattered through- 
out several different hospitals. They discovered some new 
problems, too: for instance, they found out that Uncle 
Sam had something to say about the Simmons yearbook. 
They had to turn in old copper cuts; they signed a pro- 
mise to obey the W.P.B.; they paid a big luxury tax on 
Mic Dance. Worst of all, they discovered that planning 
the book was like a guessing game:— "Will Junior Prom 
be held?" "Can they have a Mews Dance this year?" 
Since things that happen in May must be written up in 
the past tense during January, this problem was a ticklish 

But Mic staff had fun. They relaxed at their dance, 
and at the annual Mic Banquet.

Unity: Bell, Hall, Johnson 

Religious Clubs 

A fair percentage of the undergraduates join one of the 
five religious clubs at Simmons. The organizations vary 
considerably in size, scope, and purpose. 

Protestant students are eligible for membership in 
Unity Club, which is represented in an intercollegiate 
council and in intercollegiate conferences. President 
Anne Bailey made this year an unusually active one: not 
only were the usual monthly meetings with guest speakers 
continued (typical program: the Rev. Irving Murray on 
"Religion and Reason"), but the club participated in 
various forms of volunteer war work and social service in 
several Boston churches. Members relaxed at parties, 
suppers, informal Town and Gown dances, and at their 
own annual dance. 

For Catholic students, it's Newman Club — one of the 
largest college Catholic groups in New England, as Presi- 
dent Peg Coffey will tell you proudly. Teas with lectures 
by clergy and laymen, followed by discussion periods, 
were given monthly to inform members about Church 
work; and a Tech dance, a Hallowe'en Barn Dance, and 
the annual Mothers' Day Communion Breakfast were 
among the year's special events. 

Third of the large religious clubs is Menorah, like 
Unity and Newman affiliated with an intercollegiate 
organization. Mildred Katz offered members a chance to

promote faith, fun, and fellowship 

take part in many Jewish movements. The girls met once 
a month to hear speakers on current religious, social, and 
cultural problems (typical program: lecture and movies 
on "Palestine at War"). Joint meetings with other col- 
leges were held, and suppers with Harvard and Rad- 
clifTe. Members enjoyed theatre parties, teas, movies, an 
Avukah dance, and their traditional formal. 

Chairman Carol Blanchard and members of the 
Christian Science organization worked hard and en- 
thusiastically for the success of their club. The group is 
small, but has grown each year since its start in 1919. 
Since Simmons is handy to the Mother Church, a Boston 
landmark, members visited it often. At the bi-monthly 
meetings, passages from the Bible and the Christian 
Science textbook were read and discussed. Among the 
club's other activities were parties, lectures, and trips to 
places of interest. 

Youngest religious club is the League of Evangelical 
Students, organized in 1 941 . It is made up of girls who 
feel a need for Christians to unite in common fellowship 
and try to meet this need. There were daily prayer meet- 
ings, a weekly Bible study and discussion group, monthly 
general meetings with guest speakers, and meetings with 
other colleges. Two intercollegiate Bible conferences 
were attended, in the fall and in the spring.

Blue-and-gold Academy ribbons are the only insignia 
other than Stu-G rosettes worn on the Seniors' black 
gowns. These ribbons have been worn for years (the 
club was founded in 1 9 18) as a symbol of the high schol- 
arship recognized by admission to the honor society. A 
good number of the members stand well above the re- 
quirements — a 3.2 point average. Juniors and Seniors 
who have fulfilled these requirements are invited to join 
every Fall; they attend a welcome tea given by the old 
members, and go to a reception with Faculty guests. 
This year's reception was informal, and simplified, in 
keeping with the times; but the speaker was as good a 
one as the society has ever had: Madame Morize, Pro- 
fessor of Music and enthusiast over things French, who 
gave an illustrated lecture on the work of Free French 
women in England. Every undergraduate school was 
represented (President Thelma Burbank is in Business, 
the Secretary and Treasurer in Preprofessional and Gen- 
eral Science), and graduate students who made Phi 
Beta Kappa at their alma maters were admitted as 


This year the Orchestra became independent of the 
Musical Association, and functioned as a separate body 
throughout the year. In October, Louise Millican and

the appointment of a new conductor, Miss Mary Grover

of the New England Conservatory of Music. Under her 
able direction, the Orchestra conducted programs of 
music ranging from Mozart to Strauss. 

The Orchestra was composed of fourteen members 
this year: four violins, two cellos, one saxophone, two 
flutes, one snare drum and bells, two clarinets, one 
French horn, and, of course, a piano. The first appear- 
ance of the new organization was at "Capping." They 
played also at the Katherine Dell concert in April, and 
at the President's Reception and Commencement in 


The Musical Association or Glee Club is the older of 
Simmons' two student musical associations. Seventy-five 
girls survived "try-outs" this year. Their membership 
entailed a good deal of hard work and just plain "prac- 
tising," but they found it such fun that they stayed at the 
main college building long after ninth hour to sing under 
the direction of Mr. Lyle K. Ring, once a week. 

A Christmas Assembly program was the club's first 
activity. In January, members held a concert with the 
M.I.T. Glee Club at Walker Memorial, and in the same 
month they attended a dance given them by the North- 
eastern Glee Club. In the Spring, an all-girl production 
oilolanthe was presented (not many men were left around 
by then). The club had to give up its usual out-of-town 
concerts, but they did sing with other colleges near

Art Guild — they also use their heads 

Pottery, Paint 

Poster Committee 
Bane of the Poster Committee is the club officer who 
orders a poster on overnight notice; blessing is the admira- 
tion that greets their efforts when they have been able to 
give more than two hours time to their work. The mem- 
bers make eighty-five per cent of the posters used by 
clubs, Assembly Committee, and Student Government, 
and their chairman must give her permission for the 
other fifteen per cent to be placed on display. None of the 
six girls in the group intends to specialize in art — Chair- 
man Barbara Beetlestone is in Libe, Treasurer Mildred 
Acker in Nursing, the others in Business, Home Ec, Eng- 
lish. But they all have an interest in design, lettering, and 
color, and committee standards are high. They enjoy 
their work when it's not too rushed, and show consider- 
able ingenuity and talent; what's more, they are paid for 
it from fees charged their clients. Climax of their activi- 
ties is the May exhibition at which prizes are awarded 
the three top posters on the basis of student vote. 

Art Guild 
The Art Guild is small and little publicized, but its 
members are all active, all extremely interested in the 
club. They gather in the Art Room, 351, every Monday 
afternoon and work together for an hour or more. They 
are amateur craftsmen in wood, leather, and metal; 
they make linoleum blocks and dabble in paint. Science 
and Nursing students put anatomy lessons to a practical 
trial in their modelling of clay figures. 

'Okay, you can pvit it up." 

Script: Shakespeare or Zierler? 


and Posters 

In the spring, an afternoon tea was given at the ex- 
hibition of the group's work, which included articles 
ranging from tooled leather book covers to metal book- 
ends, from painted trays to pocketbooks. Helen Cooper 
was President this year; assisting her in the leadership of 
the club were Emma Brooks, Secretary-Treasurer, and 
Adah-Grace Roberts, Chairman of Activities. 

Dramatic Club 

Because of the marriage and resignation of its presi- 
dent; the Dramatic Club got off to a slow start in 1942, 
but once under way with the election of blond, vivacious 
Thelma Falk, the club was able to give each of its mem- 
bers an opportunity to be active in the particular field of 
dramatics in which she was most interested. At each of 
the monthly meetings, members gained experience 
in acting, directing, announcing, or giving monologues. 

The traditional Christmas Pageant, written by a 
Simmons alumna, was presented at Assembly just before 
winter vacation. In the spring, Interclass Competitives 
took place. 

Membership this year showed that Freshmen, particu- 
larly, were interested in dramatics. Students newly ar- 
rived from prep schools all over the country, with or- 
iginal and stimulating ideas, made meetings lively. 
Assisting Thelma Falk in leading the club were Marie 
O'Brien, Vice-President; Kitsie Haines, Secretary; and 
Edith Antunes, Treasurer. Miss Judith Matlack was the 
faculty advisor.

Y.W.C.A.: Muir, Oliver, Coffey 

Simmons Cosmo- 


More than any other club at Simmons, the Y.W.C.A. 
emphasizes the link between college and community. 
Members meet not only students from other colleges, but 
business, industrial, and domestic workers at their inter- 
race and inter-faith discussions. "Y" has become a leader 
in the Simmons war program. Members did settlement 
house work allotted them by the Defense Committee of 
Greater Boston; they conducted Saturday play-schools 
for the children of women defense workers; and they ran 
a campaign for Christmas gifts for servicemen. Once a 
month meetings were held in the Lounge with speakers 
on current religious and social topics. The majority of the 
members do not plan to make social work their career. 
Jean Muir, the president, majors in Home Ec; last 
year's president, Annie Thompson, will be a lab techni- 
cian. Students from all the schools find the organization 
a good way of expressing their social interests. 

The Y.W.C.A. provided, also, a "play" program. 
Swimming, bowling, ping-pong, and modern dancing 
were offered at the Boston headquarters. Members 
served as hostesses at monthly dances for servicemen. 
And, most popular of all its activities, the "Y" sponsored 
its annual Faculty-Student Baseball Game. 


"Y" is one of the oldest clubs at Simmons; the Cercle 
Francais and the Pan-American Union are both cora- 

Y also serves the servicemen.

paratively new — less than three years old. The Cercle 
Francais includes not only native French-speaking girls 
(Vice-President Suzanne Kaldeck, Treasurer Rachel 
Josefewitz, and others), but also a group of American 
students interested in French art, literature, and history 
(like the president, Betty Chute). Many of them no 
longer take French courses, and join the club to keep up 
their French; others join as a way of supplementing 
work in course. The Cercle Francais' activities have been 
varied. A play-reading group met regularly, produced 
Un Alari sur mesure at a general meeting. Last November, 
Professor Andre Morize of Harvard drew a record crowd 
of members and non-members when he gave a surprise 
talk on the Free French, with slides to illustrate. 


The Pan-American Union, an outgrowth of present- 
day interest in our neighbors to the south, was estab- 
lished to give Simmons girls a better understanding of 
Latin American culture and problems. As a member of 
the Pan-American Club of Boston, the Simmons organ- 
ization has often had joint meetings with groups from 
other colleges. At dinner parties, tea dances, and in 
theatre groups, Simmons members met Spanish Ameri- 
can students and professors. 

Monthly programs this year included a lecture on 
Mexico, illustrated by colored slides, and a talk by the 
president of El Grupo de Habla Espanola, the M.I.T. 
Spanish club.

An endless round of riding, writhing. 

The Outing Club is young enough for its president, 
Jean Canton, to have been a charter member as a Soph- 
omore; and it's lively enough to have a string of successful 
events to its credit. Because of the pleasure-driving ban 
and O.D.T. rulings, activities centered around Boston 
more than usual this year, but members managed to go to 
Lincoln to help the farmers with their apple-picking last 
fall, to go skiing and mountain-climbing in snowy New 
Hampshire during the winter, and to picnic and swim at 
Lake Winnipesaukee. All the members were allowed to 
use the club's Youth Hostel pass and equipment at any 
time. Indoor meetings at school were few, but there were 
occasional speakers, and movies like Ski-esta were pre- 

As members of the Intercollegiate Outing Club Asso- 
ciation, the girls have met and had fun with other college 
students, square dancing, canoeing, and hiking. The 
Simmons group entertained Harvard, Tech, Wellesley, 
Tufts, Radcliffe, and Sargent at a gay Barn Dance in the 
Refectory with cider and doughnuts, and a square-dance 
caller. There were weekends at Dartmouth's Ravine 
Camp and at Yale's Engineering Camp. The year cul- 
minated in the I.O.C.A. Spring Conference in March. 

Except for the program of the Outing Club, athletics 
are sporadic and unorganized as far as student leader-

even if they aren't artistic. 


and reconditioning 

ship is concerned. However, a good deal is done, though 
in an uncentralized way. Indeed, sports rank as the 
favorite hobby at Simmons. For Freshmen, gym is re- 
quired; under the guidance of Miss Florence S. Diall and 
Mrs. Josephine M. Chapman, they choose archery, ten- 
nis, or golf in the fall and spring, and fencing, basketball, 
or hockey in the winter. Some of them take recondition- 
ing classes also, to build up strength and posture. Upper- 
classmen do not show very great interest in the gym 
courses, but they swim at the Tech and Y.W.C.A. pools 
and nearby beaches, and ski at Dartmouth on weekends; 
they ride in the Arborway on Saturday mornings and 
they hold interclass and interhouse tennis and ping-pong 
tournaments. Skating on the campus rink draws many 
from their books on the cold days of December, January, 
and February. Except during exam time, Simmons 
manages to get in its daily dozen.

Life in a ladies' seminary 

The first few days of the Simmons year belonged to the Fresh- 
men — three hundred and seventeen of them — who were shep- 
herded through Orientation Week, with its physical exams, its 
aptitude tests, its addresses by President, Dean, Guidance Direct- 
or, and student officers, by Junior Welcome Committee and the 
Guidance staff. Climax of Orientation, and prelude to honest-to- 
goodness college life, was Freshman Reception, for which Forty- 
Sixers donned their new formals for the first time and trouped to 
meet administration and faculty members. 

The old-timers came back for Registration. Sophomores ex- 
perienced a feeling of inexpressible superiority; Juniors frantically 
hunted up their "Freshman Sisters" and made plans for showing 
them the town; Seniors looked at the Class of '46 and felt like 
grandmothers — still, it was nice to have the dignity of their caps 
and gowns appreciated, if only by the Frosh. 

Registration and the first week of classes made for a hectic life 
indeed, what with meeting old pals, getting used to new room- 
mates, unpacking, trying to work out impossible hour plans, 
listening to previews of new courses (and getting the willies from 
them), storming the Bookstore, and making firm resolutions that 
this year would see you an industrious student, a credit to your 
school, and maybe even a member of Academy. 

Sally Simmons Said : That at Tech a certain fraternity re- 
quests that its pledges bring in a floor plan of Evans Hall, not 
just the ground floor, all the floors. Somebody lock the elevator. 

But pretty soon things got into swing. Mews came out Thursdays 
with all the latest; Stu-G diary was filled up for months in ad- 
vance with reservations for club and class meetings and teas

Michael and Sally also approve winners of Mic Waltz Contest. 

Itiiiwilcs (or the bovs 

(mostly without any tea). Step Singing at the Colonnade took 
place Wednesday evenings so long as the weather was warm. 
Lanterns, Seniors in caps and gowns, Song Leaders with arms up- 
raised, the sound of all the old favorites — The College Hymn, 
Do Tou Know A College That Is In Boston Town?, Pals, Father Time 
is a Crafty Man — all these things made this our most memorable 

War work played a big part in our life throughout the year. 
Stu-G Council gave up its meeting room to bandage rollers; the 
War Service Committee under Dina Morelli arranged for knit- 
ting, first-aid classes, volunteer social work, stamp and bond 
sales, scrap drives, and blood donating. All this, along with class 
work and little home assignments like thirty-page reports to be 
done over the week end, soon had Simmons girls so busy that 
they considered asking Congress to adopt a thirty-hour day. 
Plenty of midnight oil was burned, in spite of fuel rationing.

Autumn comes early in New England. It wasn't long before the 
trees along the Fenway were shedding their leaves and we were 


changing from summer dresses to sweaters and skirts. October 
found the Class of '43 in Hallowe'en mood. The black gowns and 
mortarboards they wore so proudly during the first week of classes 
were discarded as, clad in rags and tags and tatters, grimy and 
disreputable, they bobbed for apples, had their fortunes told, 
ate hot dogs, and tumbled their way through Chairman Case's 
horrible "ghost walk." Another backsliding from dignity was 
Freshman Bib Party, at which the Class of 1946 was officially and 
affectionately autographed into Simmons. 

In November, the yearbook staff's incorrigible and impudent 
mascot Michael Microcosm appeared at Hall Table in a hand- 
some uniform of navy blue and gold, announced that he had be- 
come an Ensign in the United States Navy, and invited Simmons 
girls and their friends to the first all-college formal of the year, at 
the Hotel Statler. Three hundred and fifty couples accepted, 
wiggled through the conga line, took part in the Waltz Contest 
(winners: Joan Williams and Private Darling), and danced to the 
strains of / Left My Heart at the Stage Door Canteen, and Dearly 

Sally Simmons Said: That she wishes someone would explain 
to the faculty that the two weeks between Thanksgiving and 
Christmas go fast enough without piling on all this work to 
make the time pass. Also from all reports there will be enough 
homework for the vacation so that she'll probably be writing 
a paper on Transcendentalism under the Christmas tree. 

This was the year that we were all dreaming of a "White 
Christmas," and some of us had our dreams come true — those of 
us who didn't go home to the Deep South or to California. The 
Yule season started off, for Simmons, with a Y.W.C.A. drive for 
gifts for servicemen — books, cigarettes, and candy were dropped 
into a basket in the hall, and wrapped for distribution at U.S.O. 
parties. Just before winter vacation, the traditional Christmas

"Est-ce que vous

Pageant was presented in a hushed and darkened Assembly 
Hall, and, in more frivolous mood, Old English Dinner — most 
picturesque event of the year — took us back a few hundred years. 
Dormitory students and Student Government Council members 
became the Lord and Lady of the Manor and their retinue, gay in 
silks and satins and laces and jewels; the boar's head was brought 
on in state by two page-boys; Saint George killed the dragon— 
and then everyone was back in twentieth-century dress, and rush- 
ing for trains. Vacation was longer this year by four whole days- 

Sally Simmons Said: That one Simmons gal, arriving late at 
the marriage lecture, tried to find a seat in the crowded hall. 
One other late-comer standing by the door heard her say: "Holy 
Joe, what a bunch of optimists!" 
When we came back in January, we found blizzards, sub-zero 
weather, and midyears — the last evil by no means the least. As 
usual, social life hit a new low as studying began in earnest. Term 
papers were dashed off, outside reading skimmed through, and 
exams crammed for. But once midyears were over and the second 
semester begun, we breathed easily again — at least, after marks 
came out. We found that something new had been added for the 
second half: Military Map Making. Eighteen Seniors signed up 
for this and promised to go into the same kind of work after 
Commencement, for the duration. 

Sally Simmons Said : That she was asked to write 200 words 
on dormitory life for Mic. Ah DORMANTORT life — how 
beautiful. What is there to write except that if you were home 
you wouldn't be able to find four for bridge. 
In the middle of February the Seniors attended a tea given by 
the Simmons Alumnae Association, at which the annual Alumnae 
Honor Award and the Alumnae Scholarship Award were given 
to Marion Mainwaring and Louise Freier.

Signs of Spring — Evans roof life picks up 

Junior Prom was held earlier than usual this year, in spite of 
the gas and shoe shortages. The Juniors held their dance at the 
Kenmore, with the mascots of the different classes — Panda Bear, 
Little Lulu, and Black Lamb — as their guests of honor. As in 
past years, the Seniors serenaded them from the stage of the 
ballroom with original lyrics set to old-time tunes. 

Close upon this very special Junior function came Sopho- 
more Luncheon, biggest event on the second year students' 
calendar, with its songs, toasts, and presentation of class rings. 
Soph Shuffle and the Freshman Dance followed before long. 

Simmons went glamorous again at its second all-college dance, 
News. News Committee Chairman Marianna Evans banned cor- 
sages from the dance floor. In place of orchids and gardenias, 
"warsages" were the order of the evening — attractive rosettes 
made up of war stamps. News' lead story this year was a novel 
servicemen's derby, in which Army, Navy, and Marines coin- 

I 68 ] 


peted for the title "The-Man-of-War" in a hotly contested game 

musical chairs. 

Sally Simmons Said: 

"I'm taking Ted to Mews tonight,"" 

Cried out the Sophomore, 

"I'm taking Joe,'" the Junior said 

To even up the score. 

The Freshman spoke up shyly — said 

"Bill's coming to the dance." 

The Senior raised her eyes to heaven— 

"Just anything in pants." 
Girls at Simmons did their bit for the morale, not only of 
American boys, but of the Royal Australian Air Force, at a tea in 
Evans Hall, and of the Free French Navy, a small part of which 
came to a tea dance given in Evans by the Cercle Francais. 

The Dramatic Club came into prominence just before spring 
vacation, when it put on its annual Competitive show. Senior 
club members coached the Freshman, Sophomore and Junior 
casts in three plays which were presented in Whitney Hall 
before an audience of students and guests. Winners were the 
Juniors, with their performance of So Wonderful (In White), 
coached by Betty Dasey and Helen Pyle. 

Sally Simmons Said: That coming up in a taxi the other 

day she learned these interesting facts from the taxi driver. 
( i ) After this year there will be no more college. 

(2) After this year there will be no more teachers. 

(3) Aft er this y ear there will be only President Roosevelt. 
She neglected to ask him if there would still be taxicabs but 

gathered from the general trend of his conversation that both 
cabs and drivers would be sacrificed to the scrap metal drive. 
The world would do well without those obnoxious little "tick- 
ers" which leap to 25 before you can blow your nose. 
An epidemic of spring fever attacked the student body with 
the return from vacation early in April. Strolling along Muddy 
River, smoking in the Back Yard, and bicycle trips into the 
country made studying harder than ever. The Colonnade shed 
its storm windows, and Step Singing began again. An even surer 
sign of the beginning of the end were Senior-Faculty Supper and 
the Stu-G nominations, straw vote, and elections of next year's 

At May Party, the results of the voting were announced, the 
chain of John Simmons was given to the incoming President of 
Student Government, and the Junior Class took over college 
offices. The Seniors were left to the dizzy whirl of the last few 
weeks of college life — seminar papers, practice work, finals oral 
and written. Once exams end, the last part of the year is fun: 
Class Day, with its crowds of parents and alumnae and its gay 
summer dance; Baccalaureate with its grave sermon and proces- 
sion of the Faculty; Daisy Chain with its sober Seniors and 
Juniors clad in white; Senior Luncheon, last informal get-to- 
gether of the class, with its flowery announcement of marriages 
and engagements; President's Reception, with its introductions 
to all the professors who were strange and awful four years ago 
but whom you know well now; and Commencement, with 
Faculty and Corporation in Academic robes, parents in the side 
aisles watching proudly, and the President saying, "By virtue of 
the authority delegated to me. ..."

Microcosm conducted a poll of the Senior Class last fall. One 
hundred and thirty-five girls took part in it (72 per cent of the 
class). Their answers told a lot about the Class of '43 — its likes and 
dislikes, its habits, its men, and its morals. Here are the results. 

The first question concerned (naturally) the state of our af- 
fections. The condition of the Seniors' love life has changed since 
the poll was tabulated in January, for a number of the girls were 
inconsiderate enough to get themselves engaged or even married, 
but these are the figures corrected as nearly as possible. 

Married 10 

Engaged 23 

Going Steady 25 

Hoping 29 

Wishing 19 

Career Girls 29 

Almost all of them, however, will be in the "Career Girl" 
category for a little while at least. With the Army in Africa, the 
Marines in Montezuma, and the Navy on Newbury Street, it 
looks as if most of the Simmons girls will have a chance to put 

I ">2] 

their lour years' training to immediate use, as you can see on page 
1 02. Incidentally, most of them expect to like their work: 92 said 
that they plan to go into the kind of work they really want. Twen- 
ty-nine poor souls would like something different, the something 
different including dog-training and marriage. 

The poll also showed that work is no fairy tale to the Simmons 
girls. Close to 80 per cent of them have worked during their 
summer vacations in offices, stores, libraries, scientific labora- 
tories, publishing houses; as waitresses, as camp counsellors, as 
dietitians, as receptionists; on farms, in defense factories, and in 
volunteer social work. 

The majority did not work (outside, that is) during the college 
year; but some very busy ones did — on N.Y.A., at Show Case and 
Candy Bar, as social workers, secretaries, librarians, waitresses, 
lab technicians, hospital workers, mothers' helpers, and one as a 
resident head. 

A good many did find time, in spite of classes and home-work, 
for volunteer war service. Thirty-eight Seniors have helped with 
surgical dressings, knitting, hospital work, blood-donating, first- 
aid, air-raid wardening, aircraft spotting, lab research, social 
work, selling war stamps, and — if you can call it work — hostessing 
at U.S.O. dances. 

The favorite men's college of Simmons is still Tech, but only 
by one point. Harvard comes panting in only one vote behind. 
Dartmouth is loved by 17, for its weekends, no doubt; and Yale 
and Boston College get 8 votes each. Oxford, Cornell, Columbia, 
Amherst, Williams, Tufts, Brown and others were not forgotten; 
but Boston University was conspicuous by its absence. 

However, other figures in the poll indicate that the college of 
Uncle Sam is the most popular of all. Fifty-eight Seniors have 
men in the service — in all branches of the Army, from Air Corps

to Ski Patrol; in the Navy, Coast Guard, and Marines; and in the 
Royal Canadian Air Force. About half are officers, and half 
non-com's and privates. (See page 108.) 

For a bunch of "just hoping" girls, the Seniors do okay. In 
answer to our question "How many nights a week do you go out?" 
some of them spoke caustically of such obstacles as "a slight dis- 
tance of 4,000 miles," but others showed that their social life has 
not been interfered with too badly even if their men have been 
sent away. After all, one must keep up the morale of the men who 
are in Boston. Anyway, 48 Seniors go out two nights a week, 33 
go out three nights a week, and one lucky kid goes out six nights 
a week, or so she says. 

On these dates, 66 of the girls drink, and 66 don't. (It honestly 
was a tie.) Thirty-nine of the drinking Seniors started to drink 
after they met up with Simmons; the others have been doing it 
since they were knee-high to grasshoppers. Eighty-one of them 
smoke, while 50 think there's a cough in every carload. Of the 81, 
32 started to smoke after they came to college, and 49 smoked 
before. Of the 50, 49 never have smoked; one backward girl used 
to smoke, but stopped when she came here. Well, it takes all kinds 
to make a poll. 

To 57 of our Seniors, Sunday always means church. Forty-one 
go once in a while, 15 hardly ever make the effort, and four never 
darken the sacred doors. More than half used to go much more 
frequently than they do now. 

In the line of music, the poll shows an almost even split. Fifty- 
seven like the classical; 55 like the popular. The popular vote is 
split again — 25 sweet and 27 swing. To play their music, 26 
Seniors prefer Glenn Miller; 19, Tommy Dorsey; 17, Harry

James; and eight, Jimmy Dorsey. For semi-classical, they like 
Andre Kostelanetz, and for classical, the Boston Symphony. 

With the Shortage System in effect (most felt shortage being the 
man shortage), more girls are now tuning in the evening pro- 
grams. Of these, 31 Simmons girls like Bob Hope the best. In- 
formation Please comes in second with 16 votes, and the Lux Radio 
Theatre draws nine others. Mentioned also were Red Skelton, the 
Inner Sanctum, the Aldrich Family, and Fred Allen. 

After turning off the radio, the Seniors choose to retire to the 
pillow with a copy of the Readers Digest (or maybe they read it in 
their dentist's office). Runner-up for popularity is the Mew Yorker. 
At least the girls have varied interests: Life, Mademoiselle, and 
Time come in in that order, and Esquire, the Atlantic, Printer's Ink, 
Good Housekeeping, and Vogue all have their supporters. 

The poll showed that most of the Seniors were to be found in 
the Library during most of their "free" time between classes; the 
Butt Room ran second. They found plenty of time for club work, 
though. Seventeen of them have belonged to one club in the 
course of their four years here; 23 belonged to two clubs; 30 to 
three and 30 to four; seven to five; six to eight; and one has be- 
longed to nine. We hope that's the same girl who goes out six

nights a week. What a busy little bee she must be. Forty-three 
girls have held club offices for at least one year. 

Some of us haven't had enough school yet: 16 reported that 
they intend to do graduate work next year, and 1 7 others say 
that they will do it eventually. Ninety-three, however, have had 
all they can take. They answered our question with NO! in a 
very definite way. They're through with Soc, Ec, and dear old 

While we're on the subject of subjects: English ranks as our 
favorite, with 26 votes. A close rival is Science, the choice of 24. 
Many specific courses were named under both headings. After 
that, there's a wide variety: 18 like History; 14 Music and Art; 
eight Economics (help!); eight Psychology (the better to study 
you with, my dear); and three like Foods. Everyone else likes 
different courses — many individualists at Simmons. 

When they aren't doing homework for their favorite courses, 
the Seniors busy themselves with many hobbies, both convention- 
al and queer. Twenty-five spend their spare time reading. Twen- 
ty-six prefer to knit for HIM so that they can talk at the same 
time. (In fact one girl was frank about it and put down talking as 
her hobby.) Twenty-two would rather dance than do anything 
else. But the overwhelming favorite is sports, which drew the 
vote of 75 Seniors. Tennis, swimming, and skiing all ranked high. 
Other hobbies include music, photography, sewing, writing, and 
collecting everything from records to perfume bottles and menus. 

Finally, the poll shows that 36 girls don't cram for exams, and 
that 97 do. To those 97 we can only say — hold on tight; it's nearly 
over now.
